Weight Watchers Chat -- Part III

Starting a new thread since we are now at 250 pages on the old thread. Here is the first post from the previous thread.

"Hi there! This thread is intended for people who are following Weight Watchers, but everyone is welcome. Many times I have come home from a meeting itching to "talk" to someone else about what was said in the meeting or maybe share tips or my leader's recipe of the day. I thought it could be a place to hang out, discuss the meeting topic of the week, share recipes and goals and what ever else comes to mind."

This is a continuation of this thread:

Yay a new thread! I had an awful day of emotional eating yesterday after getting some scary news at my DD's doctor appointment.

UGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Today was WI day. I was -0.4. Last week I was only -0.2. I haven't even lost 1lb in 2 weeks! I'm soooooo frustrated right now. I didn't exercise as much as I normally do and I honestly don't think I'm eating enough. I have been doing SFT but still tracking. I put in my foods for the day and then change my tracker to points and I'm never at or even with a few points of my daily target. I'm always way under. I'm going to switch back to points this week but still eat power foods. I just need to make sure I'm eating ENOUGH of them!

Oh, and for some stupid reason I, in my frustrated state, went to McDonald's and got a Big Mac and LARGE fries for lunch! I feel ill now but it tasted soooo good at the time. Maybe this little binge will get me off of this damned plateau!

Hi :)

I'm Jessica - I'm 32 yrs old mom of 2 boys 9 & 14 months. I've lost 26.6 so far (hit my 10 percent goal this past week - yay!) and have about 65 lbs more to go until I'm a Lifetime member. My goal is to lose about 35 more lbs prior to our Disney trip December 2012!

Hi,
My name is Debbie and I am a 56 year old mother of one DD (age 33) and one wonderful grandson (almost 6 months).

I am a WW retread. I have made goal weight twice since 1997. I am not at my heaviest at this point but I need to get this weight off.

I plan on starting again this Sunday. I do better when I start at the beginning of the week.

My number one reason is that I want to be healthy so that I can keep up with my grandson and see him grown.

Welcome Robbie! Almost 35 pounds in 3 months is excellent. Congratulations!

It looks like you may have figured out where the problem is. Dont get discouraged and frustrated. It happens to everyone. We cant have wonderful losses each week. At least you're losing! Have a great week and good luck on your next weigh in.

Hi Jessica! Welcome to the thread. My name is Jessie and I have a 10 yr old boy. I like that you're planning to become a Lifetimer! You're looking at about 6 pounds per month to reach your goal which sounds very reasonable. Good luck!

That's great motivation Debbie and congratulations on your decision to come back to Weight Watchers. Let us know how it goes on Sunday and I hope you do well over the July 4th holiday.

I feel your pain, I was there for two weeks also. Go ahead and get the frustration out then get back on track. I did and I lost what I gained. Sometime you just have to "reset" your body.

Congratulations to all on their losses...and to those who gained a little, keep up the wonderful work, you'll reach your goal.

I myself have had a horrible week and haven't stayed on plan much. We live in the Colorado Springs area where the horrendous fires has been destroying houses. Im a terrible emotional eater, and I've been so nervous all week...and eating as I shouldn't. We aren't in any danger, but friends and family have been evacuated. The only "good" thing about my nerves and eating, is I also have a nervous stomach, so pretty much everything that's been coming in, has been leaving my body shortly afterwards (If you know what I mean )

Hi Robbie! I'm new as of yesterday too!

Congratulations on your success so far! Losing so much with 4 kids and a full-time job is an incredible challenge.
